    Collingwood is in red hot form after two impressive performances against Essendon and genuine premiership contender Sydney, and will need to continue it when they meet Hawthorn at the MCG tonight. We’ll have live scores from 7.50pm AEST.

    The Magpies have found their mojo and will be looking to send a message to the rest of the competition with a strong game against the Hawks.

    Collingwood has lost just one of five games since the ‘big four’ was reunited (Dane Swan, Scott Pendlebury, Dayne Beams and Steele Sidebottom), the loss coming against the Gold Coast where a rampant Gary Ablett put on a one man master class against the hapless Magpies.

    Beams’ return in particular has been crucial for Collingwood as it allows them greater flexibility in the midfield and creates a headache for the opposition team.

    With all four midfielders playing at once it is almost impossible for the opposition to stop at least one player from tearing the game apart.

    Beams didn’t play against the Hawks earlier this year when Collingwood lost by 55 points, a game in which they had control midway through the second quarter leading by 22 points.

    Hawthorn will be hoping that Collingwood’s recent form doesn’t continue, and will be buoyed by their good recent record against Collingwood.

    The Magpies haven’t beaten Hawthorn since the Hawks heart breaking preliminary final loss in 2011.

    Since then the Hawks have averaged a winning margin of 40 points in their last 4 encounters against Collingwood.

    However Hawthorn’s recent performances particularly in the last fortnight have been flat and lacklustre with a loss to Richmond and a poor win over lowly rated St Kilda.

    Expect this game to be a preview of what we may see in September with the victor likely to take a large amount of confidence going into September, and with a likely crowd of 75,000 spectators expected to turn up both teams will be up for this clash.

    Team changes

    Hawthorn have brought in Lance Franklin, Grant Birchall and Luke Hodge but will be without Max Bailey, who misses with knee soreness, and Liam Shiels will play another week in the VFL. As will Kyle Cheney, whose form for Box Hill has been excellent.

    Collingwood goes in with an unchanged team this week, with Nathan Buckley resisting the temptation to bring in Ben Hudson to help Brodie Grundy. Other than that all eyes will be on the VFL team this week.

    Keys to the game

    Dayne Beams
    Has been brilliant in the Magpies’ recent surge, averaging 31 disposals and 6.2 clearances in his five games since returning from a 15-week quad injury.

    Only Swan and Gary Ablett have averaged more disposals than Beams per game in 2013, and he’s ranked equal-fifth for clearances.

    With Franklin and Roughead at one end and Travis Cloke at the other, neither team should have trouble finding a target up forward.

    The Hawks are ranked number one for marks inside 50 this season, averaging 15 per game, while the Magpies are second with 14.2 marks per game.

    Good defenders will be at an absolute premium.


    Collingwood has been absolutely red hot, while the Hawks haven’t really shown signs of setting the world on fire. It’s time Collingwood broke the hoodoo and cemented themselves as a genuine premiership contender.

    Do or die I say: Pies by five.

      Talkiing points:

      Having Birchall certainly helped the Hawks his run and carry across half back was certainly crucial.

      The Hawks never really looked in danger of losing it, despite the fact that the Pies never stopped pressing. Players like Roughead and Burgoyne didn’t have their best games which will be a massive bonus for the Hawks. Hodge was as reliable as ever and Franklin continued his dominance against the Pies.

      Cloke was quiet after half time and players like Lynch rarely featured. Reid looked like a backman playing up forward and was really quiet even though he had a respectable 14 possessions. Grundy is a real find for the Pies his work ethic around the ground is absolutely unreal.

      Bottom Line: Hawks are the absolute favourites this year, their pressure was at an all time high tonight and they still won by close to 6 goals even though Swan and Pendlebury had 30+ touches each.

      Qtr 4 – 0:35

      Players just fighting for the ball till the end. Hawks once again show their dominance as Roughead who has had a frustrating night kicks his 1st as he wins the stoppage from 55 out.

      Wheels around on the left and Buckley grimaces in the coaches box.

      Breust had Franklin isolated with Keeffe again but the kick is just too high. Franklin’s overhead abilities leave a lot to be desired he really needs to take those marks, he just doesn’t seem to read it.

      O’Brien takes off and his handball is poor and Duryea absolutely crunches Thomas, great tackle. Beams wins the clearance but only as far as Burgoyne and Stratton on his on in the middle kicks to Gunston who can’t mark.

      The ball goes out 45 out from the Hawks goal. They win the clearance and Hill ends up with the ball 15 from goal and he snaps a goal that is the icing on a pretty sweet cake for the Hawks

      Puopolo is caught high by Thomas 54 out from goal, Franklin gets the handball and his kick is poor and cut off by Goldsack. Cloke on the wing takes a strong mark, his kick can’t find the target and the game is just winding down now.

      Swan from 50 out he is having a monster last quarter 10 possessions in the last quarter, his kick is a metre short and rushed.

      Thomas with the clearance can’t find anyone and Gibson clears, his kick is good and Hawthorn are away. Swan with a scrappy kick after winning it gets Williams away. Macaffer with a bad elbow collects Mitchell and the ball is turned over.

      The ball goes out 30 from the Hawks goal. Swan manages to cut it off.
